MISTY HUSH REVIVAL - Your Heart Is Broken [USA garage 1972] 2012 Guerssen CD

One of the most obscure U.S. private pressings from the late '60s/early '70s. For many years, The Misty Hush Revival name was only a rumor whispered in collector's circles, with only a handful of copies known of the original album around today. LikeThe Bachs or The Index, this is one of those hard-to-describe albums which seems to live in a world of its own. Despite the late 1972 release date, the music here sounds more late '60s than early '70s and the whole album has a cool, lost-in-time atmosphere. The group were in fact a club band from New Jersey, but surprisingly all the tracks are originals -- no cover versions -- and they range from fragile, dreamy pop-psych numbers to raw garage, fuzzed-out jams and teen-beat sounds. Like Patrick Lundborg says in Acid Archives: "A cool, atmospheric trip for fans of the tri-state late '60s club sound."

THE REDONDOS - Full Circle With [1965 USA] 2013 Break-A-Way

“Full Circle With The Redondos” is a limited vinyl-only release for collectors and connoisseurs of vintage garage music and offers a valuable insight into the past-history of one of the most exciting Pacific North West Psyschedelic Bands - The United Travel Service. Founded in Portland, Oregon, three members of the United Travel Service took their first musical steps in the Redondos. Like their successors, the band left a large number of unreleased recordings dating from 1965/66. Influenced by early sixties Surf and inspired by the British Invasion, the Redondos created an unique sound providing an amazing mix of storming Surf tunes, Rock ‘n’ Roll standards and moody originals, written by guitarist Ben Hoff. The innocent charm of their Beau Brummels type edgy folkbeat already reflects the magic and authenticity of the later United Travel Service material and sets The Redondos apart from the typical mid-sixties regional North West Sound of the time. The Redondos never released any records, but after a serious run through their musical legacy, we have sorted out and re-mastered their best tracks to a great blend of enjoyable covers and stand-out originals. For the group these recordings still reflect a special moment in time after nearly fifty years. Take your chance and share this unforgettable moment on this true labour of love release and be in the “Full Circle with the Redondos”.
